Sweaty proof that I'm working hard to get rid of this double-chin and the love handles!





There are days when I am the person being held up; days when I am the holder; days I idly stand by.





The lumpy backside that I am committed to change. No looking back...(pun intended)



I have 8 pics in my gallery

Today is Day One

"Remember: All that counts is how you do today. Take it day by day and those days will add up in the long run."

I'm focusing only on being good to myself TODAY. I know if I am patient and put forth an effort to change for the better what I do TODAY, I will meet my end goal, no matter how long it takes!

My coping mechanism (eating) needs to be changed; the resulting fat hurts me, both figuratively and literally. Overeating has me 67 pounds overweight as of Nov 1, 2014.

ANDREAG89 Going to my son's school to eat lunch with him today. He's still of the age where he likes his parents, so I'll take a lunch invitation from him whenever I get it!

My Goals:
(Jan) Lose 60 lbs of fat.
(Nov) Lose 67 lbs of fat.

Friday is my weigh-in day, so my weeks are broken down as Sat - Fri.

Yearly Summary:

Feb: -4.6 lb, -3.25"
Mar: +1.4 lb, no measure
Apr: No idea. Probably gain.

My Program:
My program is a sound one: Tracking what I eat, paying attention to serving sizes, focusing on eating whole foods instead of processed/pre-packaged foods, and exercising regularly. So why is it so hard for me to follow my own advice?

Personal Information:
I'm 43 and too young to be old and fat. I want to be a confident strong woman instead of a woman withering inside an overweight and unhealthy body.

Other Information:
I must remember to pray every day for God's strength to get me through. I am taking action to restore the athletic body He blessed me with.

Thanks for keeping an eye on me! In a challenge, and really keeps me exercising. My body needs muscles!

Yes, there are a lot of tears involved. Every tear other than the pups that didn't survive, has been worth the pain though.

There is always plenty of room to get back on the wagon!
I fall off, get on, sometimes three, four times a week.
